Summary

Do you fidget at work or school? Are you an annoying pen clicker? The fidget spinner is a great alternative, it's silent, weighty and addictive... It's literally the greatest thing since sliced bread!

The STL accepts standard 608 bearings.

No glue needed, just pressure fit the bearings, I found it easiest to put the bearing on a table and push the spinner on to it evenly with something flat.

See it in action! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFd6eRbALGk

Print Settings

Printer:

Cocoon Create

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.1 Looks awesome 0.2 works too

Infill:

10% - 30%


Notes:

Printed in PLA with a 0.4mm Nozzle and 1.2mm walls so the bands holding the outermost bearings in were solid plastic. The bands are also quite thin so be sure to use a skirt when printing. May need to adjust size for ABS to account for shrinkage.

Your Fidget Spinner looks great.

I downloaded it and comes standing up, tried to open it on C4D in roder to lay it flat but it won't open, anyone knows how to rotate it? I can't on Simplify3D or Slic3r

My son caught the fidget spinner bug. I spent some quality time with him printing this one (in PLA). It worked perfectly. Thanks for the model!

would you be able to make one with bearing holes 1.125" wide (outer diameter)? I have no skills with 3d drawings and have no other bearings.

Do you mind if I sell a few of these?

Nah, go for it :)

Why does this design not have caps? Can you make some?

There's plenty of 608 bearing finger caps on the site. You just need to search for it.

Spinner Thumb Screws

Printed with Hatchbox abs. First one broke putting bearing in. Scaled up by 1.375% to allow for shrinkage. Worked very well.

Can I sell prints based on this model

where did you buy the ball bearings? can you send me the site? also did you glue the bearings to the spinner with super glue?

He got them from this eBay seller: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/221015243489; and they were press-fit, without the use of any glues
